A new study shows Phoenix is the cheapest city in the country to be a fan of professional sports.

A UC Berkeley Data Science report shows it costs an average of $307.54 for a ticket, parking, hot dog and beer to a game at all four of the major sports leagues in the Valley combined.

The second cheapest city with all four major sports was Detroit with a cost of $312. 

The study shows the same combination will cost you $42.65 on average at an Arizona Diamondbacks game. That’s the third cheapest in baseball behind Cincinnati and Tampa Bay. 

At an Arizona Cardinals game the same will cost you $113. That’s still one of the cheapest in the NFL.

The Arizona Coyotes are on of the cheapest in the NHL as well at $69.93.

The Phoenix Suns, however, are in the top half of the NBA with an average cost at $81.85, despite not making the playoffs since 2010.

The most expensive city in New York, NY with an average of $557.27.
